Help me, LJ-Wan Kenobi; you're my only hope [Mar. 23rd, 2011|07:26 pm]
Zoethe
I have had a persistent cough, and the several weeks of hacking undoubtedly contributed to today's event.

Wherein I coughed spasmodically, only to hear an unpleasant...popping sound, upon the heels of which followed massive pain.

I don't think I broke a rib, more likely tore some of the meat loose from the bones. Nonetheless, these is a good deal of excruciation underway. Ferrett has drugged me up, and I'm pretty well immobilized on the couch. But I'm still hurting some and in need of shiny things to take my mind off my ribs.

So entertain me, or let me entertain you. Questions, confessions, observations, jokes, whatever you have to offer, PLEASE, share. I need distraction!! Email me if you prefer at zoethe at yahoo!

No BPAL for me, alas. I am allergic to some of their ingredients.

Good point about laughter!

Having wine instead of tea.

Your kid is silly and awesome.

Entertaining myself by watching all the Top Gears from this season that I had recorded but hadn't gotten to. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost are my OTP!!!

Erm... I like going to Bidz.com and buying pretty things. You can get a lot of very pretty trinkets for under $5 each.

I have, written on a tiny sticky note that has been on my desk for years, this:

typhon
epsilon
sanctuary
356528259

I could type to you more of my sticky notes, but this is the most incomprehensible. I have no idea what any of those things refer to. Such is the way of my sticky note life.

I discovered tonight that there is indeed a word for the phenomenon of looking at or saying something so often that it becomes gibberish. Semantic Satiation. Googling that up provided me with lots of entertainment, but I am a bit of a word nerd.

Other shiny things: just about everything ever over at how stuff works.

You want a pinterest account, to look at and save pretty shineys to?

http://pinterest.com/kibbles/ is mine. Uses bookmarklets to save things that make you go "ooo" or "want" "must do" or whatever and organizes them nicely.

And you can poke around other people's stuff and then save them to your boards.

(Anyone reading this just has to message me an email address to get an invite.)

Also, I've been distracting myself with playon.tv which lets me use my console to stream stuff to my TV, which got me actual BBC and ITV and other stations (live) around the world. And fun stuff. Takes a little bit of reading to sort out but if I figured it out, anyone can.

Oh! Since you asked for jokes... I could repeat some of the ones I found here, but I think they're far better coming from the source, so to speak. Enjoy.

If you do not already, this would be the perfect time to start reading Homestuck. It starts off slow, but cycles into EXPONENTIAL AWESOMENESS UNBELIEVABLE by the end of the first Act.

I hope you feel better soon. *hugs*

Hmmm. I'm not convinced so far, and too whacked out to read that much, but I will keep at it once I have coherency.
